Midday temp: 7C

We started to see signs of snow in Straftford, Connecticut, about 75km northeast of New York City. The highways are totally clear and dry, thankfully.

Again our issue today was finding a place to stay for the night. We thought we would travel only as far as Boston today but with no open campgrounds and no parking allowed at WalMarts we ended the day at a rest area/travel information center in Kittery, Maine. A truck driver recommended this spot when he saw us parking at a travel center (a glorified car/truck stop) in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. So we drove quite a bit longer than we wanted, setting up as the sun was setting. It's only the second time since we started this adventure that we have broken our rule of 'no driving in the dark’.

Travelled today: 574 km
Travelled to date: 17396 km
Travelled in: New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine
